WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The No. 37 Purdue men’s golf team will resume its spring season this weekend when it heads to Greenville, S.C., for the 43rd-annual Furman Intercollegiate.
Teams will compete in 18 holes each day from Friday through Sunday, teeing off at 8 a.m. ET at the par-72, 6,994-yard Furman University Golf Course.
The Boilermakers have good recent history at the event, as then-junior William Sjaichudin fired a 10-under 206 to capture the individual medal at last year’s Furman Intercollegiate. Sjaichudin is coming off of a tie for seventh place at the Puerto Rico Classic and ranks second on the team with a 73.33 stroke average this season.
Senior Tyler Duncan also tied for seventh in Puerto Rico and leads the Boilers with a 71.12 scoring average. Golfweek’s 20th-ranked individual in college golf, Duncan has five top-10 finishes in six tournaments this season, including a runner-up finish at the Jack Nicklaus Invitational.
Freshman Justin Cho will also likely look to continue his solid freshman campaign at the Furman Intercollegiate. The Alpharetta, Ga., native has played in four events and ranks third on the team with a 73.82 stroke average.
